Could you be more specific on the 12GA cartridges? Like slug/shot weight and pellet count?

Weights in pounds and ounces taken from food scale.

AK, 20 round magazine, 7.62x39, empty, 8 oz
AK, 20 round magazine, 7.62x39, 20 rounds R-P 123gr FMJ, 1 lb 4 oz

G3, 20 round magazine, empty, 8oz
G3, 20 round magazine, 20 rounds 7.62x51, 147gr surplus S&B, 1 lb 7 oz

Someone asked about 32 caliber cartridges, here goes.

32 ACP, Remington, 71gr FMJ - 116gr
32 S&W, W-W, 85gr LRN, - 130gr
32 S&W Long, Remington, 98gr LRN - 148gr
32 H&R Magnum, Federal, 90gr LSWC - 151gr
32 H&R Magnum, Federal, 85gr JHP - 147gr
32-20 Winchester, 115gr handload, - 180gr
32 Winchester Special, 170gr SilverTip - 349gr

The last one is a rifle cartridge and the OP was probably referring more to pistol cartridges.
I have a 7.62x25 and a single 30 Luger cartridge I almost weighed and included as well since they're almost the same diameter as the 32's.
